Importance of Flora and Fauna in the BWCA

Fall in the boundary waters

A Relationship That Maintains Ecological Balance

Without flora and fauna, humans and animals cannot exist. The flora (Flora is the name given to the collective plant life that grows in a certain area, in this case the BWCA)  generates and releases oxygen, which is needed by the fauna for respiratory purposes. (Fauna, on the other hand, is the  name given to collective animal life that lives in the boundary waters)

In return, the fauna produces & then releases carbon dioxide, which is needed by flora the plants for the photosynthesis process.

It’s a symbiotic relationship that’s needed in nature. Humans and animals cannot get by without. The oxygen we breathe comes from the plants, flowers, and trees found in nature. This is why the BWCA is such an amazing place. Everywhere you look you see this relationship happening.
